The Austin Veterans Day Parade Committee welcomes you to this year's page. This is an all-volunteer event operating for over 15 years and designated as an official regional site by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans' Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans'. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be so designated.
It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
Our theme this year is the military poppy and the actions in Flanders Field that inspired the poem at the end of World War I.
